Description:

The paper relates that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection challenged many accounts of design, but questions arose regarding whether it was completely incompatible with design. The paper discusses how as controversy was kindled within the scientific community and negative reactions became evident in the general public, Darwin's correspondence with Asa Gray demonstrates the reactions of both scientists to the controversy over the implications Darwin's theory of natural selection had for design, and indicates that in December of 1860, Darwin acknowledged that evolution by natural selection was not incompatible with design.
